Influence Is Unavoidable

Posted: April 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

From the telegraph to the IPhone, each form of technology is an extension of the last. And if history has taught us anything is that it will repeat itself. Speaking as a musician, I have always held the opinion that imitation is the best form of flattery. Is what Oasis burrowed from the Beatles any different from what Vanillia Ice burrowed from Queen and David Bowie? I have long since be a huge fan of Star Wars but one doesn’t need to look too far into the past to see the influence of Japanese samurai movies had on this franchise. Life in its very nature is a “remix”.  Influence is unavoidable.
